Life often double-tracks so suddenly you don’t know where you are. Familiar is not anymore, rules that once were firm, vaporize. And that’s when you grab hold of those fibers and start weaving your life together again.
So I’ve several projects underway. A delicate knitted shawl, a sassy crocheted purse, a new crocheted summer afghan to get those blues into my living room, and then the way cute amigurumi dolls. My first was a teacup designed by artist Ana Paulo Rimoli. Then I created the first of my Cocker Spaniels, Ami. My daughter has a new kitten, so I poked around trying to create a cat that looks more like a pig so I’ll have to try again. This morning I designed a tulip ami doll
based on the Shirley variety that starts pale cream and increasingly is washed with purples. They are beautiful and so here is my first try at creating the Shirley Tulip.
